#####**_~~Stand strong, soldiers!~~_**
In the first semi-final, the soldiers of Demacia face off against spirits of the Shadow Isles. Both stories are by Anthony Reynolds, but they can't meet each other in the final. I'm proud I managed to swap them around like this, because it means we won't have the same situation as last year.
In the first story, **Turmoil**, Cithria and her squad are tasked with escorting an important target to the capital. Tension around the country rises because a serial killer, worse, a _mage_ escaped from prison, but they manage to bring everyone home safely.
In the second story, **The Echoes left Behind**, we witness the story of Ledros, Champion of the King, now a restless spectre. He desperately wants to bring an end to the suffering of the Isles, to free the love of his life (and death) - Kalista, the Spear of Vengeance. He can almost reach out to her - but then, the moment is gone. Oh, how sweet the suffering of this one tastes... Another spectre appears...
